Manchester City and Arsenal Recent Form 

Here are results of the last five games played for both of these teams in all competitions.

Manchester City(WDWWW):

  • 3-0 vs Sheffield United – The FA Cup 
  • 1-1 vs Bayern Munich – Champions League
  • 3-1 vs Leicester City – Premier League
  • 3-0 vs Bayern Munich – Champions League
  • 4-1 vs Southampton – Premier League

City look to be in stellar form with four wins in five games after also cruising to an aggregate victory. against Bayern Munich (4-1) in the Champions League. Their results against weaker sides in domestic leagues is expected, usually winning with a two to three goal lead and making it difficult for them to score with their solid defense.


  • 3-3 vs Southampton – Premier League 
  • 2-2 vs West Ham – Premier League
  • 2-2 vs Liverpool – Premier League
  • 4-1 vs Leeds – Premier League
  • 4-1 vs Crystal Palace – Premier League

Arsenal doesn’t look to be in top shape with it’s three draws against teams that it’s current squad under Mikel Arteta should be running through. They almost suffered an embarrassing 3-1 loss to Southampton but pulled the scorelline back up to 3-3 just in the nick of time. It’s asif the entire game they weren’t really playing. It’s enough to say that against Manchester City on home turf this won’t fly and they’ll need to up their game.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Premier League Standings

  • 2nd in the Premier League
  • 70 points 
  • GD of 50 
  • 30 matches played


  • 1st in the Premier League
  • 75 points 
  • GD of 43
  • 32 matches played 

A win again Arsenal for City will leave them breathing down their neck as they still have two games in hand against significantly weaker sides. 

BTTS Market 

With both sides having very strong attacking players that produce results in most any scenario I think it’s likely that both teams will score. Arsenal have seen both teams score in six of their most recent games as well. Arsenal have been making defensive mistakes that jeopardise their flair at the front. 

BTTS Verdict: Yes 

Over/Under Verdict

Manchester City has seen 7/8 of their most recent matches end with over 2.5 goals while Arsenal has seen more than 2.5 in five of their last five games. These two teams also have the highest goal differences in the entire league which shows their ability to dominate teams with their attacking prowess. I count it very likely that over 2.5 goals will be scored at the Etihad with over 3.5 not a silly bet. 

Over/Under Verdict: Over 2.5 very likely
